As the culmination of our School Readiness Pathway, Private Kindergarten brings together all the lessons and skills of your child’s journey in a program designed to best prepare them for success throughout their academic life.
This program gives children a chance to sharpen academic skills, such as:
With a small classroom size, and individualized attention, children's education is focused around six important learning areas in this environment.
Provides the opportunity to experiment with different roles and materials to explore the familiar and unknown through pretend play, use imagination, and exercise social and emotional skills to make sense of the world.
Students are enabled to understand how to use difference materials to construct, create, and make sense of the way things fit together.
Creativity, problem-solving, and self-expression are developed in this center, as children discover different art techniques, color concepts, and cooperation.
Children develop critical-thinking skills, while experimenting and exploring science and math concepts that challenge their investigative skills.
Children practice communication through writing, as they work on letter and word recognition and formation, segmenting words into sounds, and putting sounds together to make words.
Story reasoning, print awareness, and word recognition are some of the significant literacy skills children begin to develop in this area.
Private kindergarten offers nationally recognized, award-winning, research-based early childhood educational curricula to enhance literacy and math skills.
